Still trying to find a job

Was kind of curious if anyone else was in the same boat.
So I was going to College in a town about 2 1/2 hours away from home. I had my own appartment, but I couldn't find a job. I started looking 3 months before I moved down there for school. I had some money saved up over the summer so I had my expenses covered at least for the semester. After three months I moved down there and still no job, not even a call back. I joined SnagAJob, and trolled Indeed daily. I went to the department if labor, and looked for work. After another month I gave up on finding part time work and started submitting for anything at all. I got one interview, as a security guard at the local mall. I meant long nights followed by long days in class but it was a job. Or at least it would have been if the guy hadn't hired an illegal immigrant under the table instead of me ( I know this because I met the guy they hired afterwards). Anyway I was undaunted, I kept applying to everywhere with an add out. I almost got a job at the local forestry department, but because I was not 21 and the job required a CDL I didn't get it. That was back in August. I haven't had so much as an interview since then. So I am not even sure what I am going to do now.
You see I would understand if I was someone who just came out of High School with no job experience, but I have an Associates Degree (almost a bachelors now) I have served in the Military ( I am still in the National Guard), and I speak not one but THREE languages! So I don't understand why I can't seem to find any kind of employment. I see people I knew in High School without a Degree or any other skills picking up jobs whenever so what is the deal?
